It gets worse: Nicole reported the problem several times to police in Canada, and contacted law enforcement in Florida, where her ex lives. After hearing her story, a Canadian officer told her, "This is the age we live in with the Internet, and police get threatened all the time via emails."When she complained to police in Florida, where her ex lives, an officer told her, "I'm going to give you the same advice that I give to everyone else with this problem: Stop using social media and get rid of your computer."After speaking with a crown attorney, Canadian police concluded in her file, "There is no criminal offense and no charges could be laid." According to her file, police told Nicole to change her email and stop contact with her ex.There are, in fact, laws that would apply in Nicole's case.Often adult couples will take intimate photos or videos for their own use, but when the relationship breaks down, one may distribute the images to others in an effort to humiliate or degrade the other person.

It’s called the Protecting Canadians from Online Crime act.Passed late last year, it came into effect only last month. A lesser known aspect of the law is that it now applies to people of all ages and the unauthorized distribution of “intimate” photos.It defines an intimate image as being one in which the subject is nude, partially nude, or engaged in explicit sexual activity.The Canadian Deparment of Justice website notes that, “Young people are increasingly consensually exchanging intimate images, which may later become fodder for humiliating cyberbullying attacks, with these images spreading quickly and often uncontrollably.Often these images are originally intended for an individual or only a small number of other people but are disseminated more widely than the originator consented to or anticipated.

The effect of this distribution is a violation of the depicted person’s privacy in relation to images, the distribution of which is likely to be embarrassing, humiliating, harassing, and degrading or to otherwise harm that person.” Revenge porn However what many don’t realize about is that while the previous laws were to protect children under 18 years of age, the new law applies to both children and adults of any age.H/T: BBC Working behind-the-scenes on the programme is producer Karen Lewis of RED Productions, director Juliet May, and executive Producer Nicola Shindler, who said screenwriter Sally Wainwright has put together a ‘fantastic’ programme.‘Sally has created an absolutely fantastic two-part special, with a very engaging plot and a brilliant combination of comedy and drama,’ she said.In Mr Penning’s written reply to Mrs Mulligan, seen by The Yorkshire Post, he says the new offence of revenge porn “is not a sexual offence, that is to say that the mental element of the offence is not a sexual one, it is a malicious one (the intent to cause distress)”.He said: “The behaviour itself is also not ‘sexual’, although the material disclosed may be sexual in nature, the offences committed requires, for example, no element of sexual contact, sexual intent or sexual gratification.“Instead it is the disclosure of photographs and/or films without the consent of the person appearing in them.For me that makes it a sexual crime and I truly believe that any reasonable person would view it in the same light.”Mrs Mulligan said: “While I understand the legal points he makes, I think to compare revenge porn with blackmail is to overlook the uniquely intimate nature of the crime.
